FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

General Information

Why does my load for disposal need to be tarped? What if I only have dirt, concrete, or items that won’t fly away?2022-05-20T22:23:20+00:00

In order to maintain our Conditional Use Permit from South Jordan City we are required to enforce ALL loads coming to the landfill are tarped and secured. The State of Utah also has a similar requirement. These requirements / laws are put into place to ensure that flying debris do not cause safety issues on our roadways as well as keep the cities clean from unwanted garbage that can leave uncovered loads.

What Type Of Material / Waste is Not Accepted?2020-10-16T14:30:12+00:00

Trans-Jordan DOES NOT accept the following items:

  • Asbestos
  • Dead Animals
  • Liquid Loads
  • Septic Loads
  • Unopened drums
    (All drums must have the top completely removed and contents removed for possible acceptance)
  • Any item, or part of an item, that has been registered. Examples: Vehicles, Trailers, Camp Trailers, Motorcycles, ATVs, Boats, etc.
    These items must be taken to a Licensed Dismantler for disposal.  You can find a list of dismantlers at mvp.tax.utah.gov/_/#1 under the “Dealer

Trans-Jordan services over 500,000 residents located in southern part of Salt Lake County. We have been accepting waste since 1958 and will continue to handle the solid waste disposal needs for the member cities and residents long after the current landfill site is full. In the next few years Trans-Jordan will be transitioning from operating the existing landfill to running waste transfer stations which will haul the trash to a co-owned landfill in Utah County.
